Finca El Bosque 2016 Magnum
Dicen que lo bueno siempre viene en pequeñas dosis. Este es el caso de Finca El Bosque de Viñedos Sierra Cantabria, que proviene de un pequeño viñedo de tan sólo 1,5 hectáreas que se circunscribe en una tenue ladera protegida por la sierra del mismo nombre.

Opinión de los críticos
2016 was a cool and slow-ripening year, and the 2016 El Bosque reflects those qualities, combining power and elegance. It's Tempranillo from only one vineyard, planted in 1973. It fermented in new French and central European oak barrels for 18 months. It's a serious and structured wine that has a subtle nose, with integrated oak, combining power and elegance. It has very good freshness, and it has the floral and red fruit character of the 2016 vintage. This wine should have a long life in bottle. I love the 2016 vintage here. 5,000 bottles were filled in July 2018. - Luis Gutiérrez.
Another tiny production, single vineyard release that's all Tempranillo, from vines planted in 1973, the 2016 Finca el Bosque was brought up mostly in French oak yet had 10% of the blend aged in Hungarian oak. It has a Pomerol-like bouquet of black and blue fruits, earth, graphite, and lead pencil that develops beautifully with time in the glass. Rich, full-bodied, powerful, and mouthfilling on the palate, it has rocking purity of fruit, sweet tannins, and a killer finish. It's another rich yet elegant wine from this estate that's going to keep for four decades or more. Bravo!
